Let me clarify my posting. As I remember, Leo did participate in the flyoff for slots, but did not fly at Nationals or any other contest that year. He was awarded a team slot based on his flying during the flyoff, not because he showed up. This was followed by a howl of protests by competitors who had flown in other contests during the year and at Nationals and led to the requirement to fly Nationals before team tryouts. Now we have FDL and Nationals as a requirement. Anyone remember differently? Mike, set me straight where I'm wrong? Eric. Eric Rood ericrood at freenet.columbus.oh.us
